    Foolow up question (kind of)

    meh - Thanks for making all the cool wallpapers. This is not exactly on topic, its almost the reverse of the original topic, but I did not want to make a separate thread for it...

    One of your wallpapers reminded me of a picture I took, I wanted to post a wallpaper of it. How do I post something to the wallpapers gallery? I can't find a "post wallpaper" link anywhere. Or do I post it and hope an editor thinks it warrants going in the gallery?

    its easy:

    1) go to the gallery
    2) go to the section that most fits your picture (sports, movies, etc)
    3) look on the upper right for the upload photos button
    4) fill out the info on it... make sure you at least give it a couple keywords describing it so people can find it if they are searching for it
    5) press select files for upload button and find the file you want on your computer
    6) press upload/submit once its loaded
    7) then you click the submit or something like that button on the next screen and you are done... find your picture in your My Photos link when you are in the gallery

    Hope that helps ya

    Pixel width maybe? / Thanks meh!

    I think you have to limit it to 900 pixels wide by 854 high. That's what I did with mine, and it looks ok on my phone, I'm about to post them.

    @meh - thanks! Err, an upload link in the category where the wallpaper belongs, well how could I ever have found that on my own! Don't know how I missed it...

    How did you resize it?

    Did the tool you used to resize it show the actual pixel width? Some tools show the pixel width but then there is a DPI setting too so 900 pixels is not always 900 pixels. I've made this mistake when exporting files from photoshop...

    I am having the same exact problem and my photo is sized far less than 900 pixels... When I go to the gallery and select the photo I want to use as my wallpaper, it makes me crop it. I don't want to crop the photo, but would rather it be my background just the way it is, rather than making it extremely large and zoomed in. Please help!
